L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator.


I have another new BB Cream to tell you about. It's also another BB Cream from L’Oréal Paris. Do you remember the L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream I told you about earlier this summer? Same brand, different line. Dare I even say I like this L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator even more? I have to, because I do. It simply makes my skin glow.

L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator

Being that this is actually part of the Youth Code skin care line, it was made with the skin care benefits in mind first, coverage second. But don't let that deter you, because the both the skin care benefits and coverage are awesome.

This BB Cream, like all BB Creams is an all-in one skincare solution. I usually still layer a BB Cream over my serum and day creams. This is the first BB Cream that I can truly wear on it's own. It helps to correct, protect and really moisturize my skin. Not to mention what it does to illuminate and perfect my skin. In one step, my skin is hydrated and luminous skin. With light-reflecting particles and a hint of tint, this adds instant luminosity, while visibly improving my uneven skin tone.  It is super soft and creamy, and spreads easily over skin with my fingers. I use less than what I do with others too. It's almost like a concentrated version, but I think it is just because of the nice slip to it.

L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator just comes in a light and medium shade. I am using the medium shade now and will definitely be picking up the light shade for use in the winter.  If you have an in-between shade, feel fee to buy them both and mix. At just $16.99 a tube, you will have your own customized blend. It's actually a great bargain at $16.99 for the luxe feel, so I wouldn't blink at having to purchase both shades, which I may have to do in between seasons.

Just some of the ingredients that help make this so great:

Vitamin B3 - Skin-brightening ingredient
Vitamin CG - Active antioxidant to help brighten skin
Pro-Cysteine - Antioxidant that works to protect skin from daily exposure to environmental aggressions
Chestnut Seed Extract (Recoverine) - Promotes natural skin exfoliation
Bismuth Oxichloride - Provides an immediate lightening effect

The only very small problem that I have pretty much gotten over (so it really isn't that big of a deal) is the scent. My nose it just too over-sensitive, and this is scented. It fades after an hour or so, but I do need to mention this for those that don't like scented creams or makeup on their skin.
